I found it hard to track the action with the camera in continuous shooting mode.
Not bad looks like it was a lot of fun! I would either try to use a faster shutter speed next time though or try and pan with the kids on the sled.
I like how the slad slapped the kid in the face in the last photo.
Too bad their legs are cut off.
What type of AF settings do you have on your camera? Looks like a bright enough day that would allow for a decently fast shutter speed..
What make/model camera?
Do you have the camera set up so it focuses when the AF button is pressed rather than when the shutter is 1/2 pressed?
The camera will continue to track and focus through each shutter release that way.
If not it has to achieve focus again after each shutter release.
I had set the camera to continuous auto focus & shutter priority of 1/250s. I was attempting to pan the kids but there was a lot of dead space (no image) between the shots.
I have since found my camera has AF tracking which should help the next time.
This is another series in which the first pic was spoiled by a drop of water falling in front of the camera.
Next time I will try the AF Tracking feature (dynamic tracking).
